The Department of Counseling houses the Master of Science (MS) in Mental Health Counseling program. This program offers a dynamic curriculum designed to prepare counselors to work in the mental health field or to pursue doctoral study in psychology and counseling.

Our students are trained to work in a variety of clinical settings with a focus on cognitive behavioral approaches, empirically based assessments and treatments, consultation, interprofessional collaboration, advocacy, individual and cultural diversity, and serving the underserved.

At PCOM, counseling graduate students focus on understanding the whole person in a manner that is consistent with the osteopathic philosophy of the university.
